Week 16 of fantasy football brings plenty of anxiety for fantasy football owners as they look forward to the last two rounds of their playoffs or their final points push to win their fantasy football league. Wide receivers are tough to measure late in the season.
It is best to consider wide receivers that are fresh and have not played an entire season when it comes down to the final few weeks. The following start and sit advice is taking into consideration that the top six to eight wide receivers are almost always a start.
Three Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Start in Week 16 of Fantasy Football
Kenny Britt: Tennessee Titans
Kenny Britt is back and he is fresh for the Tennessee Titans and his fantasy football owners. Britt showed flashes of his earlier big time fantasy football numbers in his game against the Houston Texans in his last game. Britt is a big long ball wide receiver that is reminiscent of his teammate Randy Moss in his prime. Britt will be a huge target in his game against a Kansas City Chiefs defense that is young and inexperienced. Start Kenny Britt in all fantasy football leagues for week 16 of fantasy football.
Vincent Jackson: San Diego Chargers
Phillip Rivers favorite number one wide receiver Vincent Jackson is back in the fold for the San Diego Chargers offense and they are on the same wave length after a couple of weeks of working together again. Jackson is fresh off a holdout and has played in less than five games which makes him a great start in Week 16 of fantasy football. Start Vincent Jackson in all fantasy football leagues in week 16 of fantasy football.
Mike Williams: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
After a few weeks of being shut down the emergence of Mike Williams teammate Arrelious Benn has helped get more wide open looks over the last few games. Mike Williams can be a huge asset for fantasy football owners looking for a possible waiver wire pick up or if trading is allowed until the end of the season a deal can be made for him.
If he is on a fantasy football team he can not be on the bench for this game against the Seattle Seahawks who have one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. Start Mike Williams in all fantasy football leagues in week 16 of fantasy football.
Three Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Sit in Week 16 of Fantasy Football
Larry Fitzgerald: Arizona Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals offense is embarrassing but Larry Fitzgerald has remained viable as a second wide receiver for fantasy football owners. This week he will face an angry Dallas Cowboys defense that was embarrassed on their home field by Rex Grossman and the Washington Redskins defense. Sit Larry Fitzgerald on most fantasy football teams unless the next best option is a wide receiver that ranks 12th or less in fantasy football rankings.
Santonio Holmes: New York Jets
The New York Jets offense is not fixed although the New York Jets beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in their last game. Do not be fooled by that performance. The New York Jets will head to Soldier Field and take on the Chicago Bears defense in week 16 of fantasy football.
Sanchez and Santonio Holmes failed to hook up on several key throws in the Steelers game and it was obvious they were not on the same page. Sit Santonio Holmes in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option is ranked 16th or less among fantasy football wide receivers.
Hakeem Nicks: New York Giants
Hakeem Nicks had a solid game against the Philadelphia Eagles but now he will travel to Lambeau Field and another cold weather game. Nicks is still a wide receiver that will be played in the last two weeks but in this game it makes sense to sit him against a stout Green Bay Packers defense. Sit Hakeem Nicks in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option ranks 16th or less among fantasy football wide receivers.
